13th March - Air Quality Campaign

Warwickshire County Council’s Road Safety Education Team and Eastlands Primary School have launched a campaign to improve the air quality around our school at the start and end of the day.   We are now encouraging everybody who travels by car to prevent idling by switching off your engine. Idling means leaving a car engine running whilst it is stationary. When stationary for more than 10 seconds please consider switching off your engine.

 According to Living Streets and the British Lung Foundation, there are several benefits to our children and families when we prevent idling:

  • By preventing the breathing in of harmful fumes from idling vehicles, we can reduce the risk of health problems such as lung and heart disease, strokes, and respiratory illnesses.
  • The average emissions of a passenger vehicle are 4.6 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year – by switching off your engine you can help to reduce this figure.
  • Drivers can save money by not wasting fuel when a car is switched on unnecessarily.
  • https://www.livingstreets.org.uk/get-involved/campaign-with-us/tackle-air-pollution

The whole school walked to St Peter and St John Church for a Carol Service.  We listened to the Nativity story, told through the story of Jesus’ Christmas Party by Nicholas Allen .

The Year ones were dressed as animals, angels, kings, shepherds, and Aiden in Year 6 was the Innkeeper. Four Year 6 children shared some Christmas readings. 

The whole school sang:  O Little Town of Bethlehem, We Three Kings and We Wish You A Merry Christmas.  Thank you for having us.

St Valentines Day 

It all started with a letter from a local community group asking our children to take part in a project in Hillmorton.  The Hillmorton and East Rugby Together (HEaRT) community group is for the benefit of all residents in Hillmorton and East Rugby which includes Eastlands.  To brighten the friendly bench which is on the Hillmorton Green, they asked all primary schools to send messages of love for everyone to read as they passed by.  Our children sent in some lovingly created poems, pictures and letters.  15 were chosen to appear on the bench.  Please visit the bench if you are out on your daily exercise, it is truly heartwarming.  We will display all the learning around school so we can all  'feel the love.'  Thank you to the HEaRT Community group for putting this all together. 

One of the poems has been narrated by a member of the community, listen below.  

Wow! One our pupils appeared on Coventry and Warwickshire BBC radio on Valentines Day. Press the play button below to listen!
